What people are saying about Nerja

This was an amazing experience from start to finish. The hike was challenging and steep with rocky climbs, but every step was beautiful and breathtaking. Our tour guides were attentive throughout the full day experience; They were having as much fun as us. At the top of our hike we put our wet suits on and began the decent back down. It was amazing and terrifying (in a good way) all at once. We were allowed to jump from several cliffs, rappel down rock faces and through a small passage into a cave. The wildlife, plants, mountains, river every bit of the day was amazing! I did not want it to end. My husband and I are 50 years old and moderately active (hubby is less active). We were challenged a little on the hike and our sense of adventure was tested on some of the cliff jumps (which are optional). A few things to note: wear good sneakers, the rocks can be slippery; they will get completely wet (flip flops for after). You can’t bring your camera, they take pictures.

Fantastic place to visit. Total walk is about 5 miles with some steep and narrow steps so you need to be reasonably fit and able manage lots of steps. The walk other than that is not difficult or scary, unless heights are a major issue for you. At the end of the walk there is a range of food and drink outlets, all reasonably priced.
